Greetings from, now 2,096 winery listings strong.

Our subscriber survey results are in and I thank those of you who participated (we had a 25% response rate). Here is the link to the 2015 subscriber survey: and it will be permanently located on our "other" page. For those of you who use Twitter, please publicize the study so other wine enthusiasts may discover WineRelease.

Last month I met Pascal and Melanie Levensohn of Levensohn winery and tasted through a number of their Cabernet vintages. They only produce Cabernet and do so in small quantities (under 100 cases) and are worth a look: Levensohn Vineyards

For all you long time subscribers who remember my niece Brynn (she went to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and was often the designated driver for my friend Randall and I when we toured Central Coast wineries), well, she is getting married. So the weekend of July 18th Randall and I are going to host Brynn and her friends at his house in Morro Bay for her bachelorette weekend. We are taking them wine tasting in Paso on Saturday (7/18) so if you want us to visit your winery with eight girls, email me.

And now, onto the wines...
